For those wondering how to impart eco-friendly building lessons with lightweight eco-friendly material that is easy on the eyes, easy to store and relatively easy on the pocketbook, put this set of 200 Citiblocs on the top of your eco-easy list. Each uniform piece, made from New Zealand pinewood harvested from FSC renewable forests, measures 4 ½ inches long, ¾ inches wide, and ¼ inch thick. Starting with simple structures (not all projects pictured on the package are for beginners) this set will measure up as the engineering abilities and creativity of young Bauhaus builders grows. As aspiring architects and city planners develop their designs and shape their skylines, don’t be surprised to hear the names of Walter Gropius Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, and Philip Johnson tossed about your playroom.

Editor’s Note: We suggest pairing this set with the book titled: Iggy Peck Architect
